Events, meetings, conferences and trainings

FIDELIO aims to train the next generation of scientists in order to tackle the challenges of diabetic bone disease from various angles and with the newest technologies available. Interdisciplinary training, intersectoral exchange and implementation of innovative approaches are the key. The training programme and experience of different international research environments cuts across traditional data and life sciences silos. The emphasis on translational research will support new collaborations between academics, the (bio)technology and health sector.


All ESRs will participate in network-wide meetings/events designed to complement the local research training of young researchers. These Meetings will be arranged so that each provides: courses on relevant research issues, presentation of the fellows‘ work and complementary skills/training.

Online Professional Development Programme

  • Collaboration masterclass (28th April)
  • Research leadership, creativity and innovation (30th June)
  • Public and patient engagement (14 February 2022 – at SDU, Odense)
  • Further mastery in research presentation (9 November 2022)

#6 Fundamentals of mechanical testing and computational modelling of bone

UKE, Hamburg, Germany

2022 (to be confirmed).

#7 Basics of RNA isolation using spin column-based extraction kits

Location: Qiagen, Hilden, Germany
Date: 5-6 April 2022.

This 2 day workshop we will outline the complete workflow from samples collection, nucleic acid extraction as well as downstream analysis. During the workshop we will cover the necessity of stabilization, the right choice of the extraction method and the requirements for the downstream analysis. It will also include a practical approach for miRNA isolation and downstream analysis.

Monthly Webinar Series

Each month, FIDELIO offers hour-long webinars on topics of key interest to mainly Fidelio ESRs in nonformal settings to expand the scope of knowledge of the programme.

FIDELIO webinars are open to all, with registration. To register, please send us a message through our contact form, including your email address and organisation, if applicable.

Reframing the gut-bone axis

Speaker: Carolina Medina Gomez, ERASMUS Medical Center Rotterdam
Date: Thursday, 2 June 2022, 14:00 – 15:00 CET

In this seminar I will summarize the most important investigations supporting the role of the gut microbiome in bone metabolism. At the same time, I will critically assess the level of evidence of these findings through the lens  of our current knowledge in microbiome data analysis. Finally, I will highlight the latest research reports on this topic and hypothesize where the field is moving.
